So Donald Trump copped to it. He instructed Bob Woodward that he knew how lethal the virus was—and downplayed it anyway, encouraging MAGA nation to behave as if COVID-19 was an inexpensive Chinese language knockoff of the flu. “It’s remarkable that in these interviews, the president of the United States confessed to fucking manslaughter,” Molly Jong-Quick says on the newest episode of The New Irregular. The attorneys may debate whether or not Trump has any legal culpability. However to Rick Wilson, there’s no query about Trump’s ethical accountability.“No American has killed more of their fellow Americans in this country than Donald Trump, except for Robert E. Lee and Jefferson fucking Davis,” he says. “No one has a body count to rival Trump’s. He knew it. He knew it was there. He did it. He let it happen. It is the most unbelievable and horrifying outcome that we can imagine.” Molly provides, “Mike Pence was at a pro-life event the other day. And I was thinking about the irony, right? This administration has killed 100,000 plus plus plus people. And they’re talking about embryos. Like, it’s almost beyond parody.” Mike Schmidt, the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Instances reporter, joins Rick and Molly to speak about his new e book, which examines a few of Trump’s closest confidants—to cease the president from utilizing his energy. “What is that human experience to be one of those guardrails and those containers? What is that like? What is the human experience of standing between the president and the abyss?”Take heed to The New Irregular on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher.
